The Mexican drug cartels are not only using “gunwalker” guns to shoot at helicopters but they’re also building their own tanks.

The Daily Mail reported:

Huge and imposing, these heavily-armoured converted trucks look like the warrior trucks out of action film Mad Max.

But the vehicles, cloaked in inch-thick steel plates, are actually the DIY project of Mexican drug cartels.

Gangs have transformed the pick-up trucks as part of their arsenal of weapons to battle with rivals for supremacy in the drug trade.

There are believed to be at least 100 in existence, and one video by Porvenir TV shows a warehouse housing other trucks waiting to be renovated by the cartels.

The monster trucks are capable of resisting explosives because metal plates have been welded onto them.

Other seized tanks were fitted with a revolving gun turret which can fire bullets in any direction.
